first_imgGood news. On the chauffeur’s day off, all you need do to charge your electric Rolls-Royce 102EX is drive into the carriage house more or less straight, and a wireless induction charger takes over. It’s one of three ways to charge the 1,400-pound battery under the bonnet of this experimental car that debuted at this week’s Geneva Auto Show. Three Ways to Charge the Royce Inductive charging is the neatest way to return the 102EX battery to its fullest state, but not the only one. The typical way, but this does mean extra work for Jeeves, is to connect a charging plug to the five-pin socket on the right C-pillar just above the rear tire. With typical single-phase household wiring, the charge takes 20 hours, Rolls-Royce says. If that seems longish, read on to see the size of the battery. With three-phase wiring, which may not be available everywhere, the charge time falls to eight hours. Still not quick enough charging turnaround for your next trip? Take the Bentley. The inductive charger is the most intriguing and fulfills the Rolls-Royce pre-launch promise that this wouldn’t be just another electric car. The Induction system comprises a wall-mount power unit that connects to a power transfer (transmitter) pad on the garage floor and an induction pad (receiver) at the bottom of the engine compartment. Rolls-Royce said the system is 90% efficient and “is tolerant to parking misalignment.” If you’ve seen a PowerMat or Duracell MyGrid charging pad for your cellphone and iPod, this is the same thing, only bigger. Under the Hood: More than 1,000 Laptop Batteries The battery system is under the hood (bonnet) and replaces the gasoline-powered Phantom’s V12 engine and transmission. The batteries use Lithium-Nickel-Cobalt-Manganese-Oxide (NCM) chemistry. By our calculations the battery system is equivalent to 1,000 to 1,500 laptop batteries. There are 98 cells split into five modules: 38 cells, 36 cells, 10, 8, and 4. They are shaped more or less like the gasoline engine and gearbox. The 96 cells as a group have a capacity of 71KWh (71,000 watt-hours). A typical laptop battery pack delivers about 50 watt-hours of power. The EX102 has 1,420 times that power rating. With that much power, you could run a laptop flat out for half a year, or run an iPod from now until Justin Bieber joins AARP. How many miles will it take the 6,000-pound car? That’s one Rolls-Roycle hasn’t discussed. Based on other electric cars, such as the Mini E prototype vehicles, or the Nissan Leaf, their batteries seem sized to provide 70-100 miles of driving. A series of thick cables carries power from the battery pack to two electric motors at the rear providing a combined 290KW of power, Rolls-Royce says the car accelerates to 60 mph in under 8 seconds. For now, the Rolls-Royce 102EX is a concept/prototype car that will be shown throughout the world, and made available for test drives by the Rolls-Royce constituencies: current and prospective owners, influencers (meaning it would spend time in Hollywood), journalists, and world capitals. There are no production plans imminent, although there’s no reason it couldn’t be built. Whether it costs a million dollars or a million pounds, there’s enough environmentally aware buyers, as well as those who believe in the power of one-upsmanship, to keep the Rolls-Royce factory humming.last_img read more

first_imgThe best e-readers on the market today still sport a non-color display, but in return you get very long battery life and crisp text almost as if you are reading off a piece of paper.However, color is always going to be an option users want to have, especially if e-readers are to support colorful children’s books, magazines, or become devices more suited to surfing the web. Fujitsu is one company pushing ahead with color e-paper and it has had a color e-reader on sale in Japan since 2009.AdChoices广告The FLEPia, as it is called, offers an 8-inch display capable of 1024 x 768 XGA and 260K colors. The problem with that first attempt color e-paper device was a lack of brightness, washed out colors, and a very slow refresh. So Fujitsu has gone back to the lab and created a second generation of that same display.The latest version is a big step forward. The display is thinner and considerably brighter while retaining the 4,096 color capabilities of the previous generation. Fujitsu also switched from Windows CE to Linux for the underlying OS and increased the processing speed of the device which can now achieve a 0.7 second refresh rate. The 40-hour battery life is also expected to be retained.Here’s an example of the new display next to the pervious generation. It’s clear how much the screen has improved both in terms of brightness and contrast:While the FLEPis e-reader is still not ready for the mass market, it does show that the future is bright for color e-readers that retain the long battery life and thin, light designs, but add that all important color display.via CrunchGearlast_img read more

Saturday 28 September, 6.30 – 9pm, Kennedy’s Bar, 30 – 32 Westland Row.The festival takes place from 19-29 September 2019. Share3 Tweet Email THERE IS A major conversation ongoing at the moment about how Ireland treats its cultural spaces – particularly in the wake of the Bernard Shaw closure announcement.With it being festival season, we’re seeing at the same time a range of festivals – like Dublin Fringe and the upcoming Dublin Theatre Festival – bringing art makers to the capital, and showing how the arts can be used to explore a range of topics. Also this month we’ll see a festival celebrating the work of human rights defenders, with an aim of bringing the arts and equality together across a series of events.The festival is curated by Smashing Times, which has done a lot of work in Northern Ireland on peace and reconciliation through the arts. Working with Smashing Times on the festival are Front Line Defenders, Trinity College Dublin, Irish Council for Civil Liberties, Trócaire and Fighting Words. Mary Moynihan, Curator of the Festival and a writer, theatre-maker, film-maker and artistic director of Smashing Times told TheJournal.ie that the idea of the festival “is to raise awareness of and celebrate human rights through the arts and explore stories that are happening in Ireland and around the world both in the past and today”.The team want to make the event “a celebration”, showing “dignity and respect for people”. “You’re shining a light on the difficult areas or difficult things happening,” explained Moynihan. center_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article There are a lot of very technical definitions of human rights – for me it is about promoting dignity, fairness and respect for people. It’s about celebrating our humanity.To Moynihan, the connection between arts and human rights is obvious. Both are about “exploring the world we live in and the human relationships and human connections”.As an artist, she wants to tell stories that have a human impact. “The arts can be a way to bring people into the story on a more personal level,” she explains. “It’s an entry point for human rights in a way that is accessible. A way to embed human rights in society and to shine a light on what’s happening in a way that is accessible and reaches people.”PeacebuildingSmashing Times has long lived this truth – in 1991 they went to Northern Ireland to work on peacebuilding and reconciliation through the arts. They went on from there to work across Europe on a range of different projects, bringing the arts to people affected by the refugee crisis and conflict. “The arts are really good for bringing people together to have difficult conversations,” explained Moynihan. “If you go to the theatre you choose to go to listen to someone else’s story. Stepping into someone else’s shoes is very important part in theatre.” Their work in Northern Ireland was before the ceasefires, and focused on using drama to bring people together across the different religious and social divides.“Storytelling became an important part of that,” explains Moynihan. “We went to hard to reach communities, using theatre to enable people to tell their stories and express what happened with them. But also to meet other groups and build a form of connection.”The conversations started in the North in 1991 need to continue day, says Moynihan. “It’s absolutely essential we continue this dialogue,” she said. “What we’re hearing is there are still needs that have to be met on the ground for people who lived through the Troubles. It can’t be buried, it has to be explored.”The conversation also goes beyond the Troubles, with Moynihan pointing out that the phrase ‘human rights’ doesn’t just refer to conflicts. “Human rights are so important to Ireland – if you can’t get proper hospital care or get on a waiting list that is about human rights. If you can’t get a house to live in or your kids can’t afford to move out of home, that is human rights. There is obviously a scale of human rights, from having freedom denied and life taken away – it’s all part of the continuum.”“I hope that we’re building connections between artists, audiences and people who are affected by working in the area of human rights,” says Moynihan of the festival. “And raising awareness of stories that aren’t being told.”I hope that people will come together and help us celebrate that we need to speak out and stand up for the rights of people, particularly people who are different to us.

first_img2014 Gubernatorial candidates answer questions formulated by Anchorage middle schoolers on April 30, 2014. (Photo by Josh Edge, APRN – Anchorage)Middle schoolers from across Anchorage had a chance to hear from Gubernatorial candidates on Wednesday about a variety of issues the state is facing.Download AudioOver 100 students representing all of the Anchorage School District’s middle schools gathered in the lobby of the Loussac Library’s Wilda Marston Theatre.While they were waiting for the forum to begin, students and teachers munched on Moose’s Tooth Pizza while mingling with Gubernatorial candidates Byron Mallott, Bill Walker, and current Governor Sean Parnell.Once the pizza was finished, everyone filed into the auditorium to hear the candidates respond to a number of questions generated by students and teachers, who worked together to research topics they thought Alaska’s next governor needs to address.Governor Sean Parnell, the Republican gubernatorial candidate, speaks with students prior to the AARP-sponsored candidate forum on April 30, 2014. (Photo by Josh Edge, APRN – Anchorage)“Our question is, do you think Alaskans should be required to show a photo ID to vote? Why or why not?” Robert King, an 8th grader at Clark Middle School, said.When the candidates addressed the question during the forum, they answered with a unanimous “no” – primarily because it would limit Alaskan’s ability to vote…especially in rural communities.Corin Kotzke is an 8th grader at Romig Middle School. He was particularly interested in the candidates’ responses to education-related questions.“I would like to see another increase in the base student allocation and more stability for the jobs of teacher so teachers don’t have to be worrying about retirement and class sizes will be reduced so there can be more 1-on-1 working with teachers and students,” Kotzke said.All of the candidates said they are in favor of improving Alaska’s education system.Republican candidate Governor Sean Parnell says education funding has increased substantially since he has been in office.Independent candidate Bill Walker says the best way to increase education funding is for the state to generate more revenue with more resource development.And Democratic candidate Byron Mallott says education must be funded fully… and create certainty for students, teachers and administrators.But Romig 8th grader Aaron Jenkins wasn’t satisfied with those answers. He wanted more specifics from the candidates“I was hoping to hear some of the 7th period that they are proposing for high schools next year,” Jenkins said. “Yeah, they did talk about their plans to increase the budget for schools, but not their plans for the schools themselves – which I would have liked to hear.”Other topics ranged from the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and the expansion of Medicaid in Alaska, to the growth of Alaska’s economy, and how to strike a balance between new construction and maintaining existing infrastructure.Byron Mallott – the Democratic candidate – was happy with the forum’s turnout. And he says it’s important that adults work to get young people interested and involved in the political process.“In many ways, Alaska is a vast land, but it’s a small community,” Mallott said. “And children influence every aspect of our lives; they should be our highest priority.”The forum was organized by AARP Alaska and moderated by Andrew Halcro, of the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce, and Jeannine English, the incoming AARP National President.last_img read more

Photo: Zahidul KarimThe National Committee to Protect Shipping, Roads and Railways (NCPSRR) said that government initiatives for home bound people’s safe and risk-free journey during Eid holidays were not sufficient, reports UNB.The organisation on Wednesday made the allegation in a pre-Eid observation report, said a press release.But overall security in all bus terminals in the capital, including Sadarghat launch terminal and Kamlapur rail station, are satisfactory, the civil rights body admitted.The observation said that holidaymakers were suffering on roads from Dhaka to different parts of the country, including 21 districts of south-western region, due to intolerable gridlock on Dhaka-Chittagong highway and lack of proper management on Shimulia (Munshiganj) and Paturia (Manikganj) ferry ghat.According to observation, the authorities concerned have failed to protect timetable disaster of launches and trains. They also failed to stop collection of extra bus and launch fare from holiday makers.The NCPSRR said that about 1.29 crore people would leave Dhaka, Gazipur and Narayanganj for different districts during the Eid. Of them, about 55 percent would use roads, 25 percent waterways and 20 percent railways, which would put huge extra pressure on bus, railway and launch terminals, the press release said.According to the observation, among 87 launches, plying the Padma’s Shimulia-Kathalbari river route regularly, almost 90 percent are structurally and technically faulty and have gone past their economic lifetime years before.The report said a huge portion of roads are dilapidated, and the number of risky turning points on several highways is abnormally high. different parts of the country, including Dhaka to Chittagong, Aricha, Tangail, Mymensingh and Sylhet highway, which would be threat to smooth and safe journey.last_img read more

first_imgTear gas is seen while police take their position in the street of Dhaka on 8 February 2018. Photo: Reuters Dhaka fails to respond to UN`s rights concerns: HRWThe Bangladesh delegation to the United Nation’s ‘Universal Periodic Review (UPR)’ in Geneva on 14 May, failed to respond to pressing human rights concerns in the country, according to Human Rights Watch.The New York-based rights group insisted that the Bangladesh government should use the UPR at the UN Human Rights Council as a “time for reflection, not self-congratulation”.Instead, HRW said, the law minister, Anisul Huq, speaking for the government, highlighted only what their administration considered to be positive steps.The minister had just glossed over concerns about critical issues such as enforced disappearances, secret and arbitrary detention, extrajudicial killings, and a crackdown on freedom of speech and association, HRW said in report ” Bangladesh: Skirting the Issues at the UN” issued on Wednesday.It recommended that Bangladesh should show its commitment to human rights by giving full consideration to recommendations from other countries and accepting those that would significantly improve its compliance with international human rights standards.Read more: UN calls for criminalising enforced disappearance in Bangladesh“Bangladesh needs to stop ignoring and start addressing serious human rights violations, such as when its security forces engage in enforced disappearances, killings, torture, and arbitrary arrests, many of them politically motivated,” said HRW Asia director Brad Adams.The report, however, mentioned that a number of member countries rightly praised the government’s willingness to open the Bangladesh border and provide aid to hundreds of thousands of Rohingya fleeing atrocities by the Myanmar military.The Bangladesh delegation spoke at length about the progress on handling the influx of the Rohingya refugees but responded with silence and denial to questions and recommendations by several countries, including concerns about extrajudicial killings, enforced disappearances, and attacks on human rights defenders, the report pointed out.“Bangladesh says it remains committed to doing right by the Rohingya refugees, but it should embrace that same principle towards its own citizens,” Adams said.“With national elections next [this] year, it is essential for the government to expand democratic space and provide room for debate and dissent.”Human Rights Watch and other groups have reported for many years about human rights concerns in Bangladesh, and many of these concerns were simply not addressed adequately by Bangladesh in the hearing., the report said.It recalled that the government pledged during the previous periodic review in 2013 to thoroughly and impartially investigate and prosecute all allegations of human rights violations, in particular by the security forces.”But it has ignored and denied reports of violations since then, including about violence by the security forces during the 2014 elections and against people who protested the conduct of the elections. The government delegation claimed that it is taking action against those responsible for abuse, but there is little evidence or transparency on this,” the HRW report observed.It said Human Rights Watch has also documented several cases in which members of the political opposition have been forcibly disappeared or secretly detained without charge. “Scores of Bangladesh National Party (BNP) supporters were unlawfully detained and several remains disappeared.”Another key concern to which the government delegation responded inadequately is attacks against critical media and nongovernmental organisations, HRW pointed out.Many people have been and continue to be jailed or charged under section 57 of the Information and Communication Technology Act, which includes “vague and overbroad provisions to target free speech”. Section 57 has also been used to target key civil society leaders and institutions, the report added.”The government has also been using sedition and other criminal laws to target free speech.”last_img

first_imgBrendan Smialowski/AFP/Getty ImagesPresident Trump waits to sign an executive action directing the Treasury secretary to review the Dodd-Frank financial oversight law in the Oval Office on Friday. The limitation of banks’ ability to take risks, in part through a provision known as the Volcker Rule (named after Obama administration economic adviser Paul Volcker), which prohibits banks from making certain types of speculative investments with their own money. President Trump signed two directives on Friday, ordering a review of financial industry regulations known as Dodd-Frank and halting implementation of a rule that requires financial advisers to act in the best interests of their clients, according to a senior administration official who briefed reporters on condition of anonymity.Trump himself made his intentions clear in a meeting with small business owners Monday. “Dodd-Frank is a disaster,” Trump said. “We’re going to be doing a big number on Dodd-Frank.”These executive actions are the start of a Trump administration effort to reverse or revise financial regulations put in place by the Obama administration and seen by Trump and his advisers as onerous and ineffective.Based on the description given by the administration official who briefed reporters, the directives the president is expected to sign Friday won’t immediately do a big number on the law. The directive will instruct the Treasury secretary to meet with the agencies that oversee the law to identify possible changes.“Americans are going to have better choices and Americans are going to have better products because we’re not going to burden the banks with literally hundreds of billions of dollars of regulatory costs every year,” said National Economic Council director Gary Cohn in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. Cohn, who was president and COO at the investment banking firm Goldman Sachs before joining the administration, added, “The banks are going to be able to price product more efficiently and more effectively to consumers.”The president of the nonprofit Wall Street watchdog Better Markets issued a statement blasting Friday’s actions.“The American people trusted candidate Trump when he said he was going to protect them from Wall Street’s recklessness, but President Trump has betrayed that trust,” Dennis Kelleher’s statement says. “He is unleashing Wall Street on Main Street, which is exactly what the financial protections of Dodd Frank were put in place to prevent.”Hinting at where the administration might expect the review to lead, the official said that under the Obama administration, “some of the rules may have even been unconstitutional, creating new agencies that don’t actually protect consumers.”That is an allusion to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the consumer watchdog bureau which Republicans in Congress opposed from its very creation and was the subject of a years-long fight over its leadership and structure.“This is not an attempt to undo Dodd-Frank,” the administration official insisted before going on to explain that some of the work of changing regulations, including the so-called Volcker Rule to mitigate risks, could be done through personnel, putting Trump-allied people in charge at agencies like the Securities and Exchange Commission.It isn’t clear yet how long the review would take, but the official says every aspect of the law will be considered.A second directive would call on the Department of Labor to defer implementation of an Obama-era rule, known as the Fiduciary Rule, requiring financial advisers to act in the best interests of their clients in retirement planning.The deadline for implementation was supposed to be April. Echoing arguments of the financial services industry, the Trump administration official said the rule would have unintended consequences if allowed to go forward. The industry says the rule will make it harder for advisers to serve lower-income clients. Backers of the rule say it will prevent advisers from gouging customers by selling them inappropriate, high-fee products. Once the review is complete, the official said, it’s possible the Labor Department could determine the rule is completely unnecessary.This rule has been heavily lobbied and some financial industry organizations had been pushing for the Trump administration to delay it.Key provisions of Dodd-FrankDodd-Frank, passed in 2010, is made up of many provisions across many different regulatory agencies, some of which — like the Labor Department’s Fiduciary Rule — have yet to be implemented.The intent of the law was to implement comprehensive safeguards to monitor and regulate financial institutions so their potential failures would not pose a risk to the entire economy.Dodd-Frank established some key new institutions and rules:The creation of new agencies, including the Financial Stability Oversight Council, made up of 10 regulators representing the Federal Reserve, Treasury Department, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Securities and Exchange Commission, among others. It also created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which has broad authority to monitor and investigate financial institutions and enforce consumer rights. The creation of new standards for mortgages, including provisions requiring loan underwriters to better vet their borrowers’ ability to repay, and increasing consumer disclosure requirements to lenders.Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/. The creation of a mechanism to unwind large financial institutions if they run into trouble. The law required all financial institutions designated as “systemically important financial institutions” to prepare so-called “living wills.” These wills would give regulators more transparency into the bank or insurance firm’s activities, in order to better mitigate risk. The establishment of a structure for regulating a relatively new derivative market known as credit default swaps, which prior to the Dodd-Frank Act were largely unregulated. Major financial institutions traded these swaps, which functioned like insurance on mortgage securities, and as the underlying mortgages started to fail, it created enormous liabilities for firms like AIG.

first_img NIST System Sets Speed Record For Generation of Quantum Keys for ‘Unbreakable’ Encryption (Phys.org)—A team of German physicists has successfully demonstrated an ability to perform quantum key distribution (QKD) exchange between an airplane in flight and a ground station, paving the way perhaps to the same kinds of communications between satellites and ground stations which could lead to a global quantum based secure communications network. The team presented their results at the QCrypt convention this past week. Explore further Optical ground station. a Telescope of the optical ground station located on the roof of the DLR institute building next to the airport Oberpfa enhofen. b Closeup of the optical breadboard attached to the back of the main telescope mirror indicating the signal path for the qubits (green) and the beacon light (red). Credit: Sebastian Nauerth et al. Two make such a system work, the photons must be sent from one station and received by another. In this case, they were sent from a moving airplane using a laser and mirrors to a ground station that also used mirrors, no easy feat due to the sensitivity of attempting to read individual photons. Still the researchers managed to make it happen and perhaps even more remarkably, were able to hold on to the connection for ten minutes; long enough to transmit 10 kilobytes of data (at 145 qubits per second) with an error rate of just 4.8%. That’s enough to send a key, and that’s all that’s really needed to build quantum based network.Based on these results alone, it’s clear that a truly secure network could be put in place, in a battle zone for instance, with keys being transmitted from drones hovering overhead. But of course, that won’t be enough, the real goal will be to see if the same feat can be achieved between satellites and ground stations giving us a world where all communications can be made almost perfectly secure. Scientists have over the years developed some very powerful encryption schemes that are almost impossible to crack, yet virtually all of them rely on one weak point, the key that is used to unlock them. For this reason, cryptologists have been pinning their hopes on QKD. This is because of the nature of quantum bits; looking at or measuring them causes them to be changed, which would alert the true owners of the key that a breach has occurred.QKD is where encryption keys are generated based on the polarization of photons to represent 1s and 0s. The photons in such a system are converted to qubits on the receiving end where they can be read and interpreted. While the idea has been around for quite some time, it’s only recently that workable devices have actually been built. Prior to this new development, another team had achieved a QKD exchange between two stationary buildings. © 2012 Phys.org More information: Paper PDF: www.qcrypt.net/docs/extended-a … 12_submission_12.pdf The Do228 aircraft equipped with the ight terminal.

first_img‘I like my whiskey old, and my women young’ said Errol Flynn, the romantic swashbuckler from the Hollywood movies. He was one of the most famous actors in the 1930s and 1940s whose unmatched charm made him famous but his deviant personality brought for his downfall. Flynn was born in Hobart, Tasmania in 1909 and was problematic and eccentric throughout his childhood. After being expelled from school for theft, he spent some time in Papua, New Guinea and Sydney, Australia before moving to London. However, unable to settle into British society, he soon returned home.Errol FlynnHe tried going to school again, at the Sydney Church of England Grammar School but was again expelled, allegedly for having sex with the school laundress. After that, he worked as a clerk but soon lost the job for stealing petty cash.Being handsome and charismatic brought Flynn to the world of cinema. In 1933, he appeared in a low budget Australian movie In the Wake of the Bounty as an amateur actor in the lead role as Christian Fletcher. However, it was obvious to everyone, mostly to Flynn himself that he lacked a lot of knowledge and acting skills.Errol Flynn at the age of nine, as a page boy in the Queen Carnival pageant held in Burnie, Tasmania. On his right is Enid Lyons, who would later become the first woman elected to the Australian House of Representatives.Determined to succeed, Errol sailed back to England where he trained at the Northampton Repertory Company for seven months. Unsurprisingly, he was dismissed after a fight with a female stage manager that involved her falling down some stairs.Errol Flynn at South West London College aged 14 (1923)Regardless of his behavior, Flynn’s irresistible charisma won him the lead role in Murderer at Monte Carlo (now lost) and subsequently a contract with Warner Brothers. So Flynn left Europe and flew to America. In Hollywood, he was an immediate sensation, and his career began to flourish.Flynn and first wife, Lili Damita, at Los Angeles airport in 1941.In 1935, he started in Captain Blood and The Sea Hawk. Bringing back popularity to the adventure movies, Flynn was regularly cast as a dashing adventurer, famous for his fast-paced and well-choreographed sword fights. Some consider Flynn to be the greatest swashbuckler of all.Flynn in That Forsyte Woman (1949).He and Olivia de Havilland appeared together in nine movies becoming one of Hollywood’s most popular romantic on screen pairings. Although both of them admitted that there was chemistry between them backstage, nothing ever happened because of Flynn’s marriage to the French actress Lili Damita. They married in 1935 but divorced in 1942.Flynn was known for his heavy drinking, womanizing, and chain smoking. He was often involved in scandals which were damaging to his public image.Errol Flynn with Olivia de Havilland in Santa Fe Trail (1940).Great Hollywood legends quotesIn 1942, Flynn became an American citizen and applied to join the armed services but was found unfit due to several health problems.He suffered from an enlarged heart (with probably at least one heart attack at the time); recurrent malaria which he contracted during his time in New Guinea; chronic back pain for which he regularly took morphine and later heroin; lingering chronic tuberculosis; and six separate STDs.Errol Flynn with Olivia de Havilland in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938).At around the same time, new genres such as film noir and urban realism changed the public’s taste. Flynn, mastering the English-based epics, was unable to make the transition and the quality of his acting dropped. Hollywood didn’t worry — there were countless other talented actors waiting to get on screen, and Flynn was released from his contractsBy 41, Errol’s acting career has ended.

first_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility FILE – In this Dec. 17, 2012, file photo, Syrian rebels attend a training session in Maaret Ikhwan near Idlib, Syria. Fewer than 100 Syrian rebels are currently being trained by the U.S. military to fight the Islamic State group, a tiny total for a sputtering program with a stated goal of producing 5,400 fighters a year. The training effort is moving so slowly that critics question whether it can produce enough capable fighters quickly enough to make a difference. Military officials said this past week that they still hope for 3,000 by year’s end. Privately, they acknowledge the trend is moving in the wrong direction. (AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen, File) On June 26, 2014, the White House said it was asking Congress for $500 million for a three-year train-and-equip program. The training, however, only got started in May after months of recruiting and vetting of volunteers.That program, together with a more advanced but also troubled parallel effort to rebuild the Iraqi army, is central to the U.S.-led effort to create ground forces capable of fighting IS without involving U.S. ground combat troops.The Syria initiative is intended to enable moderate opposition forces to defend their own towns against the IS militants, not to form a national resistance army. Expectations for the Iraqis are much higher; the goal is to have them roll back IS and restore the Iraq-Syria border.The main problem thus far has been finding enough Syrian recruits untainted by extremist affiliations or disqualified by physical or other flaws. Of approximately 6,000 volunteers, about 1,500 have passed muster and await movement to training camps in other countries. Citing security concerns, the Pentagon will not say exactly how many are in training.Officials said that as of Friday, the number in training had dropped below 100 and that none has completed the program. Dozens who were initially accepted have been sent home during training or quit because of revelations about their background or other problems, according to two senior U.S. defense officials. They were not authorized to discuss details and spoke on condition of anonymity. WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. military’s program to train and equip thousands of moderate Syrian rebels is faltering, with fewer than 100 volunteers, raising questions about whether the effort can produce enough capable fighters quickly enough to make a difference in the war against the Islamic State.The stated U.S. goal is to train and equip 5,400 rebels per year, and military officials said last week that they still hope for 3,000 by year’s end. Privately, they acknowledge the trend is moving in the wrong direction. Sponsored Stories “So these constraints that we put on ourselves, which are perfectly understandable, do progressively limit the number of inductees into the program,” Carter told Congress. “And that’s proving the thing that limits the growth of the program.”Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at the same House hearing that “within the next couple of months” the administration will have to decide what kinds of post-training support the Syrian rebels will receive. He said the Pentagon is considering several forms, including intelligence, communications, logistics and battlefield airpower.U.S. officials have pointed to the Syrian Kurds’ successes in the north as an example of what U.S. airpower can enable when coupled with a credible, reliable ground force. But it does not answer the question posed by Rep. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., to Dempsey.When she asked him whether the rebel training program is worth continuing, he offered something less than a ringing endorsement.“It’s a little too soon to give up on it,” Dempsey said.___Associated Press writer Bassem Mroue in Beirut contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Abdul-Jabbar Abu Thabet, commander of Aleppo Swords Battalion, a moderate faction that is fighting both Assad’s forces and IS, said he believes the Americans are more interested in recruiting Syrian army defectors than moderate rebels.He said he would no longer give Americans the names of training candidates from his group, after having done so once and not receiving a U.S. response.“The Americans are saying they want to train rebels to fight against Daesh only,” he said by telephone from northern Syria, using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group. “The fighting should be against Daesh, the (Assad) regime and everyone who is against the revolution.”The Pentagon announced in May that it had begun training 90 recruits in Jordan, but it has refused to give details. Defense officials, however, said last week that training also is underway in Turkey. Eventually it is to be expanded to bases in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.Each trainee is receiving a U.S. stipend of between $250 and $400 a month, with the amount set by their skill level, performance and leadership role, said a Pentagon spokeswoman, Navy Cmdr. Elissa Smith.The Pentagon also is wrestling with how to support those who complete the training and are sent back into Syria. Also, there are questions about how to avoid having their U.S.-supplied arms fall into the wrong hands inside Syria. 4 ways to protect your company from cyber breaches The difference between men and women when it comes to paincenter_img “We have set the bar very high on vetting,” said Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman.Maj. Gen. Michael Nagata, the Central Command special operations commander who is heading the program, wants volunteers with more than a will to fight.“We are trying to recruit and identify people who … can be counted on … to fight, to have the right mindset and ideology,” and at the same time be willing to make combating IS their first priority, Defense Secretary Ash Carter told the House Armed Services Committee on June 17.“It turns out to be very hard to identify people who meet both of those criteria,” Carter said.Many Syrian rebel volunteers prefer to use their training to fight the government of President Bashar Assad, the original target of their revolution. While IS has been a brutal occupant of much of their country, the rebels see the extremists as fighting a parallel war.Jennifer Cafarella, a Syria analyst at the Institute for the Study of War, doubts the viability of the training program.“It is simply difficult to acquire the number of Syrian rebels willing to participate in the training under current parameters,” she said.

first_imgNorwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. Partners with All Hands VolunteersNorwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. Partners with All Hands VolunteersNorwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd., a leading global cruise company which operates the Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands, today announced a partnership with All Hands Volunteers, the world’s leading disaster relief organization powered by volunteers, and set a goal to raise $2.5 million for the Hope Starts Here hurricane relief program. Under Hope Starts Here, the company is committing to match up to $1.25 million of donations from its valued guests, team members, suppliers and partners in order to substantially help All Hands Volunteers (hands.org), a 501(c)3 non-profit relief organization, and Happy Hearts Fund (happyheartsfund.org) deliver early relief response for the Florida Keys, and rebuild safe, resilient schools in the Caribbean islands impacted by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.“We are heartbroken to see the devastation that Hurricanes Irma and Maria have inflicted on the Florida Keys and several Caribbean islands, where our ships have been visiting since the beginning of our 50 years in business,” said Frank Del Rio, President and Chief Executive Officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. “The Caribbean is part of our family, and we are grateful to work with All Hands Volunteers and Happy Hearts Fund to create the Hope Starts Here hurricane relief program and do our part in giving back to these destinations. We’re proud to start our campaign with a $600,000 donation to help begin the rebuilding efforts.”“We are incredibly grateful for this support from Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd., and for our continued partnership with Happy Hearts Fund to provide their support and expertise,” said David Campbell, Chairman and Founder of All Hands Volunteers. “As the single largest donation in our organization’s history, this funding could not have come at a more crucial time as we work to rebuild communities in the U.S. Virgin Islands and other Caribbean islands after the destruction brought by recent natural disasters, Hurricanes Irma and Maria. All Hands Volunteers will work together with the local communities to meet their long-term needs and rebuild hope.”“We are thrilled to receive this donation from Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. and to work in partnership with All Hands Volunteers with their hurricane relief efforts in the Caribbean islands and the Florida Keys,” said Petra Nemcova, Founder of Happy Hearts Fund. “This funding will allow us to together rebuild safe, resilient schools in areas most impacted by recent natural disasters to keep children safe, but also to ensure that these communities are not forgotten when the emergency response efforts are complete. Children often wait four or more years for schools to be rebuilt, and I hope that more companies will take the same thoughtful actions for long-term recovery.”In the wake of Hurricane Irma, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. immediately deployed Norwegian Sky to St. Thomas, USVI to bring 35 pallets of much-needed supplies and assist in humanitarian efforts to evacuate residents and visitors. Additionally, one of the company’s newest ships, Norwegian Escape, also housed approximately 4,000 displaced guests who were unable to secure flights home due to hurricane closures. The company is continuing to collect essential items, including medical supplies, diapers, baby formula, water, food, construction materials, blankets, sleeping pods and more, and is working with partners on the ground to support disaster relief efforts.

first_imgDmitry Klyuev, the sanctioned Russian bank owner considered by the US as the mastermind of a tax fraud uncovered by Sergei Magnitsky, had indeed banked with FBME Bank, despite what its former owners claimed.The former owners of FBME Bank Ltd said that Dmitry Klyuev and Andrei Pavlov, both key suspects in the theft of $230m in taxes uncovered by lawyer Sergei Magnitsky and placed on a sanctions list by the US, were not customers of the bank’s Cyprus branch.Documents seen by the Cyprus Business Mail show that Klyuev, who was convicted for fraud in Russia and is regarded as the owner of Russia’s Universalny Bank Sberezhenia (or Universal Savings Bank, unrelated to Cyprus’s USB Bank and the Swiss UBS Bank), was owner of Altem Invest Ltd and Zibar Management Inc. Both companies, registered in the British Virgin Islands (BVI), were customers of the Cyprus branch of FBME.According to FBME’s record, Altem’s nominal owner is Antonina Kazakova, a 50-year-old yoga instructor residing in India’s Goa. In the case of Zibar, the nominal owner is Alexander Ovchinnikov, an obscure 57-year-old Russian citizen born in Serpuhov, in the Moscow region.Yet, the documents seen by the Cyprus Business Mail show that Klyuev, whose Universalny Bank Sberezhenia appears to have been involved in theft of taxes paid by three subsidiaries of Hermitage Capital, was the true beneficiary of both Altem and Zibar.The Altem account with FBME was the destination of three successive wires on March 2-4, 2011, totalling $1.4m by Klyuev after Switzerland’s UBS Bank decided to close his accounts. The UBS Bank documents seen by the Cyprus Business Mail listed Klyuev as Altem’s beneficial owner.On July 27, 2010, Klyuev, instructed UBS to wire all funds of his BVI company Intermedcenter Ltd to Altem’s FBME account. This resulted to the transfer of almost $3.5m in August 10-19, 2010. Also, Klyuev initially paid bills to the Zurich-based Dietrich, Baumgartner & Partner law firm which administered his Liechtenstein-based company Aronoil Establishment from a UBS account before it was closed in February 2011. Two months later, Dietrich and Baumgartner received a $4,999 payment from Altem’s FBME account.Klyuev also paid for his son’s school fees using funds from Altem’s FBME account, just like he did in the past with his UBS Bank account. Another $139,542 in funds were wired to the same school from Zibar’s FBME account between January 2012 and May 2012. There is a pattern of countless bank transfers from initially UBS Bank accounts and later the FBME accounts of Zibar and Altem to beneficiaries with links to Klyuev, comparable to the above.According to documents seen by the Cyprus Business Mail, the 41-years-old Pavlov, a Russian corporate lawyer also implicated in the Magnitsky case, received from Altem and Zibar a total of $1.4m wired to accounts owned by Quorumdebt Management Ltd and Oakley Assets Ltd between June 2011 and August 2012 at Latvia’s ABLV Bank. The Financial Crime Enforcement Network (FinCEN) described the Latvian lender in February as a financial institution “of primary money laundering concern,” just like it had done, four years earlier, with FBME Bank.Oakely Assets Ltd, incorporated in Belize, was until August 27, 2015, the owner of Quorumdebt. Then, the Belizean firm, owned to 100 per cent by Andrei Pavlov, via Christina Cornelia van den Berg, a nominee shareholder from South Africa, transferred its Quorumdebt shares to ConnectedSky Nominees Ltd, a Cypriot company headquartered at 12, Igoumenitsas street in Strovolos.In a letter she sent to Cyprus’ Attorney-general Costas Clerides, a month ago, Portuguese MEP Ana Gomes asked whether Cypriot authorities had investigated the activities and assets of Klyuev and Pavlov and had “obtained and analysed evidence on the nominees, agents and administrators –CONNECT – SKY– who presently continue to act for the benefit” of the Klyuev Group. ConnectedSky did not respond to a request for comment.FBME Bank had the licence of its Cyprus branch revoked by the Central Bank of Cyprus in December 2015, which placed it in July 2014 under administration and subsequently resolution. The Tanzanian supervisor also revoked FBME’s licence last year and the bank lost a legal battle in the US against FinCEN which barred it from transacting in dollars.The allegation that Kluyev and his legal services provider Pavlov had received funds that arrived at the Altem and Zibar accounts with FBME Bank was included in the letter Gomes sent to the AG. The MEP also requested information, about possible action taken by Cypriot authorities to investigate the theft of $230m of taxes paid by Hermitage Capital in Russia and to prosecute suspects.Magnitsky died in a Russian prison almost nine years ago, when the police officers he implicated in the case, arrested him and deprived him access to medical treatment.A week ago, Cypriot authorities announced the launching of a campaign to improve Cyprus’s reputation abroad tarnished by money laundering allegations in the past.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
